The Vomit Arsonist – That Which Has Been Forgotten (2019)
It is weird how the memory works. I have known TVM for a long time, but in my head they make the kind of noise that I do not like, chaotic, many high frequencies, etc. Then I was combing through Spotify to make a playlist of “vocal noise” the name passed by and I thought to take a quick listen just to make sure if I was right about not liking this project.
Spotify has this album released in 2020, Discogs says 2019 and I believe the latter. The Spotify listing is a reason for this review as I do not usually review older releases that I discover.
That said, putting on the album, the sound is exactly what I was looking for for my playlist. Heavy, dark industrial noise with extreme vocals. Damn this stuff is dark! Slow, pounding rhythms, typical noisy metal clanging and very heavy vocals. The music is not as harsh as it can get. Some tracks are almost dark ambient, but the vocals make obvious: this is noise.
Maybe not the best material in the style, but it seems that I have overlooked The Vomit Arsonist and that while exactly a decade ago I reviewed a mcd of theirs that I also liked.
